For over 800 years, since our founding by St. Francis of Assisi, Franciscan friars have been praying for the intentions of those who ask. Whatever your prayer need — whether depression, grieving, unemployment or illness — finding peace of mind provides a foundation of strength to address the problems that face you. We stand with you to help you do that through our prayers.
There are four methods to leave prayer requests with the Franciscan friars:
- You can write your intention on the form below.
- You can leave an intention as a voice message at the prayer request line 857-206-7209.
- You can write an intention on the clipboard in the lobby of the shrine.
The Friars will pray for the intentions of all who ask regardless of how we receive those requests. The Friars are pleased to do this as our gift to you.
Please know that our loving God, who knows the contents of our hearts, has already heard your prayer.
The Lord bless you and keep you.
May He show His face to you and have mercy.
May He turn His countenance to you and give you peace.
The Lord bless you!
–The blessing of Brother Leo by St. Francis of Assisi
